M Narredu-trained Unforgettable You justified the strong support and splashed on to the scene at the business end. A progeny of Arazan and Change of Luck and from Villoo’s Greenfield Stud, was not in a prominent position at any stage for most part of the 2000m long journey.

PUNE: Unforgettable You, with P Trevor astride, scored a fluent victory to pocket the PRA Independence Million on Tuesday.

M Narredu-trained Unforgettable You justified the strong support and splashed on to the scene at the business end. A progeny of Arazan and Change of Luck and from Villoo’s Greenfield Stud, was not in a prominent position at any stage for most part of the 2000m long journey.

She had to make his run along the wider outmost of the way but recovered well to be in striking position at the final turn. Trevor produced Unforgettable You from the outside to inch closer to the fighting duo. 

Unforgettable You then unleashed a powerful burst to tackle Carnival in front of the stands and then shifted gears to speed away and win with authority.

What made the victory even sweeter was the fact that Unforgettable You was heavier than others, yet she won with something to spare.

The day`s races did not run kindly for punters as several horses, which looked invincible faltered much to the chagrin of race-goers, who were at their wits end in trying to spot a winner. 

For the professionals, trainer Narendra Lagad saddled a treble, Mallesh Narredu a double. Jockeys P Trevor and Dashrath Singh scored a double each.
